Fading Swim Platform( recommended cleaner?)

Hey guys,
My swim platform on my x-45 has went from a nice white to a dingy yellow. Does anyone recommend any type of cleaner to turn this beauty back to white.Thanks!

Take some time with a dual action sander with 80 grit followed by 150 grit. Then oil it with 75/25 teak oil and mineral spirits. Mine went from "blah" to "wow" using the same process.

Try iron out (any general store should have it, i mix it in a sprayer with water and spray on the fiberglass) follow up with a wax once clean to keep it from getting stained again. Pictures would help
